The Challenge

EcoWorld faced difficulties in hiring a competent Lead System Architect who would be responsible for consolidating a vast array of data types. Finding an effective senior developer that can help business scale is harder to find than an average software developer and they did not have a streamlined and accurate vetting process to evaluate developer candidates.

The System Architect's role was to consolidate this data and simplify its ingestion for dashboard presentation, crucial for enhancing operations and decision-making. However, EcoWorld lacked the internal expertise for sourcing and vetting the right talent, compounded by the need for a candidate with skills in data management, system architecture, and business operations.

Faced with the challenge of hiring an experienced system architect, EcoWorld turned to Showwcase. Their traditional methods, including online job postings, were not yielding results. Leveraging Showwcase's extensive professional network, EcoWorld was able to access a pool of developers who were thoroughly vetted and fit their specific requirements. This included seeking out a Lead System Architect with 8-15 years of data consolidation experience. Showwcase's rigorous vetting procedures, which consisted of two live interviews and a technical assessment, ensured only the most qualified candidates made it through.

EcoWorld successfully minimized their hiring time and accelerated their hiring cycle by leveraging Showwcase's network. The platform's pre-vetting process eliminated the need for EcoWorld to extensively evaluate the technical skills of candidates, allowing them to focus more on final interviews with an emphasis on cultural fit and teamwork.
